Mitas 4 Islands is one of those few races in the world of mountain biking that takes place completely on the seaside

Many of our riders have a bit of a hard time focusing on the trails themselves, since the Adriatic landscape offers so many distractions.

From trail sections that follow coastal paths to sandy beaches and high vantage points that offer a view of the sea stretching out between the 4 islands of Krk, Rab, Cres and Lošinj, this race has it all.

And it’s not only the sights that the sea provides, oh no!

Nothing beats the clean sea air fragranced by pine trees, lavander, sage and other medicinal herbs that grow in this part of Croatia, while the sound of the waves washing up on the beach pebbles is accompanied by a chorus of crickets and music from the local tavern as the sun sinks beneath the horizon.

Truly a race that offers both thrills and relaxation to all riders.
